Redesigning Your Logos! YGR 27
 
12:00
Hello design champs! Today I went through four of your logo designs. I didn't make very significant changes to any of them, all were changed very subtly. It's so fun to see what you guys are working on! I'm not sure if all of my redesigns were a good direction but hopefully, each designer can take at least one thing as an idea for their logo. Thanks for being here guys!

How To Create Texture Gradients - Illustrator Tutorial
 
07:19
You can take your illustration or project to the next level by adding a bit of texture. Texture gradients are an awesome way to add a little bit of realism and at the same time a unique vibe that will make your work stand out! Adding a textured gradient in illustrator with this method is easy and I hope you all give it a shot on your next project. There are other ways to add grain or texture to a gradient but most of them involve image tracing, this is a faster way if you don't want to spend too much time :) Here's my tablet: https://amzn.to/2PmmytS Here's my camera: https://amzn.to/2vTpuG8 zimrimayfield.com Facebook.com/zimrimayfield Instagram: @zimmayfield

Destroying Your Design Projects - You Guys Rule 8
 
11:38
Hey design champions! Today I went through three logo designs that some design champions were awesome enough to submit, so we could critique and re-design them on, "You Guys Rule!" I'm not certain if my design changes made them significantly better, most of them were very good to begin with. Just hope I didn't make any of them worse during the critique.

Hello design champs! Today I went through four of your logo designs. The changes for these four were very minimal. I’m trying to find a nice balance between sticking to the original design and improving the logo.

Design a perfect original logo with these steps
 
05:26
Hey design champions. In this logo design tutorial I wanted to share with you the 8 steps I've been using to create original logo designs. It's all about digging a little deeper into finding truly creative concepts. I start by listing ideas, then doing a lot of searching for inspiration. After I've found ideas that I think will work for the logo design, I ask myself if these ideas are truly original or if they are are just what is most convenient. I then try to combine the logo concepts I decided on with an interesting art style. Hope you enjoy the design process and get something out of the video!

My Creative Schedule
 
02:34
A creative schedule is an awesome way to keep you progressing as an artist. Establishing a schedule and telling others about your schedule will keep you accountable to producing and creating. In my schedule I've included digital mediums like photoshop and illustrator, as well as traditional art. I'm going work on my drawing and coloring skills. This schedule is intended to put more emphasis on my art skills so that one day I could live up to the title of, "artist."

Modern Logo Design Tutorial - 2018
 
08:41
In this logo design tutorial, we will be creating a modern and simplified logo for a sushi restaurant called, “Sakura.” We start with receiving the logo design brief from the client and getting our design specifications. We then adventure through the internet looking for similar design ideas and gathering inspiration. During the process of finding inspiration we look for several things. First, we look for examples of what others have done to get ideas, and also to see what to avoid. We also take note of any good color usage or ideas. The goal here is to gather ideas from multiple sources that we can merge together to create an entirely unique and original modern logo design. We then move into adobe illustrator and start working with a few of our initial logo ideas. After we get to a point where we are pleased with how the logo is designed we move into a revision phase. The revision phase is the most important step in creating a clean modern logo. It helps to step away from the computer for an hour or a day and come back to your work with fresh eyes to see what parts of the logo needs to be changed. After we make the revisions to our logo it’s important that we do it again and again to flush out any mistakes or awkward areas.

My Los Angeles Studio Tour

Hey everyone. I didn't have too much time to do a full project today but wanted to get a video done. So here's a very strange look at my studio apartment in Los Angeles. I live very close to downtown and my studio apartment is on the third floor. I've been living here for about 2 years and it's the funnest apartment i've lived in personally but not thrilled with it. I get tons of light which is great for art and filming but can get extremely hot in the summer. Hope you guys enjoy this strange look behind the scenes where I make my designs and sometimes art.

7 Tips For Design Portfolio Presentation
 
04:25
The project I re-did is here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/61526915/SuperMealz-Branding-Site-Design Hey y’all! In this video I go over seven tips to help you improve the way you present your graphic design projects. Having an expert looking portfolio is one of the most effective tools we have as designers. It is important to present your portfolio well for getting freelance work as well as being hired as an in-house graphic designer. Tip 1: simplify the presentation of your project. Make sure that your actual design is the star of the show and it doesn’t get lost in an over-complicated presentation. Tip 2: Make your presentation in separate images. This allows you to make changes to your presentation easily later without having to exchange the entire portfolio image. Tip 3: Don’t go crazy with the amount of text in your presentation. Keep it between one sentence and two paragraphs. Tip 4: Include your sketches and pre-work. Sketches are particularly helpful if your project is an illustration or custom typography. Tip 5: Don’t use too many fonts. If you use one or two fonts in your design project, then make sure you stick to one of those in your portfolio presentation. Tip 6: Try not to repeat elements too often. If your project involves a logo design then there’s no need to paste the logo throughout your entire presentation. Tip 7: Don’t add artificial length to your design project. Try not to present the same thing in several different ways just to make your project seem more involved or complex. Okay guys, I really hope these tips help you improve how your graphic design projects are presented!

Website Design For Genius People

Come join the pre-sign up for an awesome design club at http://rtweek.com/ Hey Design champions! In today's episode of making design stuffs, I start working on a website redesign for Spark Squared. I spent some time with pen and paper drawing out what information was on the website already and how I would like to adjust the information. After that, I sketched out how I think the information should flow in terms of the website design. Finally, I finished with a rough sketch of the entire UI design on paper. After that process, I started working in Photoshop to lay out the first stage of the website design mockup. I'm going to be creating the entire design in photoshop and creating separate mobile designs for the website as well. I hope you guys enjoy the process and thanks so much for being here!

Poster Design Process

Hi Design Champions! I'm starting something new to work on my design skills. By creating a random project in a random medium, hopefully, it will challenge me to push myself creatively and improve as a designer. For this project I was challenged to create a print poster design for a vegan shoe company. I used adobe Illustrator exclusively, but if I had time I would have moved the poster design into photoshop and added some lighting effects and detail. zimrimayfield.com facebook.com/zimrimayfield instagram: @zimmayfield

The Greatest Logo Design Ever Designed - Ever!
 
06:13
You can see the comic book project here: http://www.emptiescomics.com Some may deny the facts about this logo, but the truth is obvious - this is the greatest logo design ever :P I started with a logo prompt from the 30 logo challenge - this one was to create a logo for a line of chef’s tools called “sharp.” The prompt asked for a minimal clean logo design in black and white. To begin the logo design process I started in adobe illustrator cc. I wanted to create a word mark that made up the body of the image itself. I found a sans serif font that was modern and minimal to work with. After trying various options I created a shape and subtracted areas of the letters to create a nice bottom side curve. I created a handle for the tool and added an extra element to the side of the “P.” I think overall this design came out well, but might need a little more exploration. Thanks for watching guys!

Logo Design Process - For Cool People!
 
05:31
Today's logo design challenge asked me to create a logo for a company called Bookworm. The logo design process starts by creating a list of words associated with the logo idea. Then deciding on a visual representation for a few of those words. For this process I chose to work with the words "letters and "page." I created a graphic representation of a typeface on a page and connected some of the lines to create a worm. I created a simple layout of blocks in illustrator cc to make the composition for this design. I then found a typeface that seemed similar to what you might find in a text book or newspaper. I hope you enjoy watching the logo design process today! See all you cool kids later.

How To Make Your Logo Design Look Good Always
 
07:51
Hey design champions! Hope you're all doing well and designing some awesome things! today we go over a few tips and tricks I think are important for making your logo design really good. The first tip is making sure your lines aren't too thin. The strongest logos don't have many lines, but if you choose to implement lines make sure the width is on the weightier side. The second tip is making sure your logo icon and your supporting text don't fight for attention. If one is visually interesting, try not to make the other too complicated. Third, see yourself as simply a creator of icons, rather than an illustrator or a designer. This will allow you to create logo designs that are simple yet informative without creating overly complicated logos. The final tip is learning to embrace and use color. Color is part of the design itself, it conveys meaning, so remember to both consider the color you use and to include color in your final designs. Thanks so much for watching and being here you design champions. Every one of you make my life better!

How To Design A Personal Logo
 
08:09
Make sure to pre-sign up for our awesome possum design club here: rtweek.com The personal logo design process can be very difficult. Hopefully after watching this video, you’ll get a new perspective or at least a few ideas on how to design a personal logo of your own. It’s especially hard to come up with an idea when you aren’t sure exactly what kind of designer you want to be. But don’t worry, personal logos can change and you shouldn’t feel as though you’re designing something that you have to be locked into for your whole life. The best way to go about creating a personal logo is to focus on what is unique about you. That could be anything, but to help i’ll give a few examples. Do you have a unique family? Were you in love with a sport or a band when you were young? Is there something about you that people usually pick up on quite quickly? After you have identified a few things that make you unique, try to make ideas of how you can represent those traits visually. When creating the personal logo, try out a bunch of things and don’t give up if it feels like it’s not working, you’re probably just around the corner from a really great personal logo design!

Real Client Logo Design yay!
 
07:30
Hey design champs! Haven’t seen you guys in a while, hope you’ve all been very well and making many design things. In today’s video I create a set of logo directions for a real client. If you watched my previous videos then you know i’m creating a logo for a medical communications company called medcomco. The previous logo directions I created didn’t quite hit the mark, so I hope these ones will be a bit closer. For these options I started by looking at a lot of inspiration for both medical communication company logos, scientific logos, and transportation logos. I also used the new client brief to pare all the ideas together. I created all three logo concepts in adobe illustrator using the pen tool, shape builder tool, and various alignments. Now I will send off the logo options and hope to hear some positive feedback!
